Nice Build, I really want to do a frame off with my yj, but I'm pretty sure my wife would kill me.

Amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do. I was going to do this a while back, the pros of the YJ such as fuel injection, but with the classis CJ look. Is there any reason that you didn't go with a CJ dash?

Hi,

@GRYDE001: Yes, it's POR 15 too. Inspected the parts very intensive. They seem to be ok.
I'm now pretty good in training to dis- and reassemble, if ...

@MattTB:I have just finished the renewal of the YJ dashboard last winter. But CJ dash might be an option maybe later


Cheers

Hi,

thanks for your advice. But things aren't easy in Germany We have a technical comission and your car has to pass. Without those trackbars you'll only get

Keep you updated, Saturday will be Jeep-working-day

cheers

@ Swagger_Wagon: Nice to read some words in german. Seems there are some guys out there who are speaking german. Thinking of changing the language of the thread

Unfortunately there's no update from saturday.
I started building a roofing behind my garage. I want to have the Jeep parts standing outside protected from the elements.

Hi folks,

in spite of minus (celsius) temperatures in my garage I started working on the Jeep.

My plan was to rebuild the motor, but my torque spanner starts at 15 ftlb but the waterpump etc has to be torqued with 13
So I have to by a small one.


But it starts to look like a motor




So I decided to start with the gearbox:






Prepared with Aceton for painting.





And finnally painted.

Hi folks,

next part:



Who is wondering that there's still a gearbox attached. I have a new gearbox and use my old transfer case.








Cleaned and ready for paint:




And painted silver:

Looks good. A lot of attention to detail.

I took German in high school, but I only retained bits and pieces of it, most aren't forum friendly.
